To add.  The reporting marks change to AQCX at some point.  Both marks are connected to Aluminum Ore Company, a subsidiary of ALCOA.

Subject: [RealSTMFC] Alcoa Covered Hoppers

In the late 1930's Pullman Standard built 85 interesting large covered hopper cars for Aluminum Corporation of America, AOCX 1200-1284, for alumina loading.  These large cars had 10 bottom hoppers (5 on each side of the center sill) and 6 rectangular hatches on the roof. 
 
Has anyone seen a photo of one of these cars?  Source?  On-line?
 
They appear to be big, like a carbon black car.
 
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
